Did some more mixing and hope it got better and not worse :lol: ?

This version is with the Dragonfly plugin as send effect (15 ms Reverb time, and early and late reflection set to 80% and 100%, dry set to 0%)

This version is using the Airwindows Nonlinear Space plugin as send reverb:

The difference is very subtle, but I think I like the latter a bit more. Maybe I've chosen the wrong parameters for the Dragonfly.
I also boosted the kick at 80Hz, added the JS saturation plugin in the Drum track and added the Airwindows ADclip 7 plugin in the master channel, boosted also a bit the bass and the treble in the master.

Concerning the drum sounds I tried to find something better, but I think it fits perfectly. I think to make them more aggressive sounding doesn't fit the style. I have the package from https://samples.kb6.de/downloads.php

I like to maintain somewhat of my own sound and if I give the samples away then I'm at risk of other people's styles starting to sound like me, and I don't know how I feel about that.



Sure, would be interesting, but I use samples very rarely (except I make them on my own or stuff like the NASA samples).

half way between ebm (e.g. Nitzer Ebb) and electro-industrial (e.g. Frontline Assembly)


Hmm... I don't see much in common with these two bands, but I will now definitely listen to my (only) FLA CD (Tactical Neural Implant) again. Nitzer Ebb is much more aggressive and reduced sounding.

Yes, the difference is very subtle. I think both mixes with reverb are better than the original, it feels more cohesive to me with a little bit of reverb. I also think you've done good at avoiding too much reverb, which can be an easy mistake to do.

Maybe, maybe not. Dragonfly is primarily intended as a "concert hall" reverb, but I keep asking people doing different styles to try it. I want to hear if it works for other things. Sometimes people like it, sometimes not. In the end, use what works for the sound that you want.

Replaced the kick with a more aggressive one... added some more bling bling and improved the mix...
